Sauber Formula 1 driver Adrian Sutil joined Certina president Adrian Bosshard at Hour Passion on London’s Oxford Street to compete against fans in a F1 simulator.
Guests posed questions to Sutil at a Q&A session, held ahead of the British Grand Prix, before attempting to beat his Silverstone track time in the simulator.
F1 super fan Martin Rosser was the closest to Sutil’s time with a drive time of 1 minute 45.116 seconds, winning a British Grand Prix F1 experience while Matthew Gill took second place, winning a Certina DS Eagle watch.
Certina Brand President Adrian Bosshard said: “We are so pleased to have Adrian Sutil join us here in the UK ahead of the British Grand Prix and thrilled that we have given fans a chance to meet him and talk to him about his experiences. As a driver, Sutil knows the importance of precision and timing – a split second can mean the difference between a loss or a podium finish. We wish both Sutil and Sauber, our partners the best of luck!”
Swatch Group’s Certina brand has been an official partner of the Swiss Sauber F1 team since 2005.
